Andrew Heaney Newsbeat

Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney not concerned about long-term impact of injury - The Orange County Register

Despite the fear that Andrew Heaney’s forearm tightness is a precursor to something far more serious, at the moment Heaney and the Angels are remaining optimistic.

Heaney may miss only a few weeks if all he has is a strained flexor muscle in his forearm.

“I saw the MRI for myself,” Heaney said Thursday. “Obviously I’m not a doctor, but the way they explained it to me, it looked perfectly sound and healthy.”

In this case, “it” refers to the ulnar collateral ligament, which leads to Tommy John surgery when it’s torn. Sometimes pitchers who first complain of forearm tightness end up with a torn UCL. That’s what happened to Tyler Skaggs in July 2014.
